It's just a little push that is needed. If you have a DIY VLOG/BLOG and want it to be published here for feedback and more audience, I would love to give you all that little push and Feature it on my Artistic Thursday dedicating one post solely to you. Just share me your details in my Contact Form . I will have a look into it personally and definitely get back to you if anything else is required. I would love to be a part of your journey and learn something new. Looking forward for some great entries. Please help me spread it to your artist friends too. PS: It's free. 🙂 Coming back to my Shades Of Life, It is yet again a painting that is close to my heart. It took me a lot of patience to get what I wanted. But that is what life is. Isn't it? You need to struggle sometimes to get what you want . You will find happiness comes with sadness, success comes with failure. There is nothing to worry about. You will overcome it all if you face your situation. Just have patience and wait for the next best thing to happen in your life. You will be yourself surprised at what the world has got to offer you. Yes, this painting taught me to be patient and the result is in front of you.
PS: I am super jammed with work today but somewhere in my mind I wanted to post this first. So here I am , sitting in a meeting room(while others think I am working on the logs) LOL It's like I am cheating on my work .Sorry but not sorry. I deserved a break. I can totally justify myself. (What is blogging doing to me).
Last weekend my property was disclosed in front of my family. By property I don't mean money. But with which I have been able to build my own empire of clothes(which have been disowned from their own wardrobe because they don't fit anymore). I tried to stuff as much as I could. But in vain. To my utter dismay, this truth came into light when my parents saw my hidden empire. My empire was supposed to go downhill!!! Next what happened is something I couldn't believe. My heart skipped a bit. My world stopped revolving for a while. What did I just hear? Well to state, that exact statement would be ~You're not supposed to shop anymore. You're banned from shopping. FULL STOP.
Stopped the car(no, I am not text driving) because of the traffic. I see this lady standing in this scorching sun looking for a bus ride. Let me disclose a bit of myself. I don't like long bus rides and definitely not if it involves waiting for in the sun. I have this love hate relationship with Sun. I did try but it just seems impossible for me. I feel so lucky at times. There are so many who don't have the required mode of easy travel. We forget how much we have. We always strive for what we don't have and in that meantime forget all that we have at the moment. I thank God and am back on my track. Would have offered the lady a ride but she had to go somewhere else.
Let me try to reason myself out. I am pretty good with directions. It has only been once or twice okay!!! maybe thrice(please don't intimidate me to blurt the truth) that I pointed left and told someone to take a right. It can happen to anybody right? Left? Right? Ahh whatever!!! Where shall I bury my face. Duhh me!!!
I am surprised and my dad is full of praises. So I shift my places and see what she has to offer. There it is written below the image: Bed mattress price list 2018. And she tells me as cutely as ever, the price is Two thousand eighteen 🤦 I start laughing and pinch her cheeks. It's just the year mom!!! Embarrassed she blushes. I am still angry with my bed. I need to put the blame on someone. So Peppy it is.( I put a name on everything). I also named my TV Stevie 🙈 Makes it more personal you see.
Though I must confess that my parents and my close friends are getting super suspicious of what I keep typing. Or what is keeping me so much busy these days. (They don't know yet that I am a Blogger in progress) 😂 I must warn you though. When parents antennas are activated, you're in high alert zone. They will find out sooner or later. But I intend to keep it this way. It is fun and definitely legal so they have got nothing to worry.
This might not be one of my best paintings but I chose to publish this first because I wanted to prove a point. No matter what you go through your life, whatever hardships or obstacles you may face. Never give up. Believe in yourself and have the faith that tomorrow will undoubtedly be a better day . When you push yourself a little bit everyday, when you motivate yourself a little bit everyday, you are bound to find yourself in a better state the next day. Just never lose hope. Just believe that the Grass Is Greener On Your Side.
I am on cloud nine!!! I am doing my victory dance right now (only if you could see but thank god for that.) This is my First Award Nomination and that too for MYSTERY BLOGGER, like how mysterious can it get? I already feel like a star who is about to give acceptance speech . But I will spare you all from that.
I am just too much into food right now(read: Since forever). The problem is that I think they want me to eat them. I know they don't have legs but how else would you explain them ending up in my hand every other time. Strange right? It's like I am inviting them : "Hey there, why don't you come and stay over in my stomach for a night". It has to anyway leave the house next day. (If you know what I mean). It's not like I do much. They just seem to love me back. Well most of them. I can judge if they liked the stay or not. Sometimes you won't even know they are staying but other times, some of them I must say make the stay so hard that I contemplate on why I invited (read : ate) them in the first place. The series that follows next is not to be mentioned.
If luck is by your side, it won't be a sunny day and you would love the climate. However, God always plans to test my strength and I had a perfect sunny day by my side(Too sunny and let me set this straight once and for all, I don't quite like the sun)
It's not everyday you think you can cut back from work and enjoy the rest of the at your leisure. For a change, Today seemed like a perfect day . All things delivered on time and ample amount of time wasted in practicing how I should autograph(Of course once I am famous I would need that. duh!!!)
Sometimes all you can do is sit back and watch your own movie play without your control over it. You can't fast forward to see what happens next and you can't rewind to maybe change a few things. You just have to live in the present.
It's funny how when you're a kid all you want is to grow up fast and be an adult. I had the illusion that world is so much better being a grown up. You want to fit in your mom's heels and your sister's classy clothes.
So I tip toe to the front door and see through the peep hole. Heart beats fast. I take a long breathe and see finally who it is. I heave a sigh of relief. Hahhh!!! It's...
Is it just me or once you share your thoughts you keep coming back to look at how well your blog is doing. The mind is a restless place. Was I able to grab someone's attention? I might be the new kid around the BLOG(If you know what I mean)
Today has been tough. Work wise! but the money in my purse makes the day bearable 😀 The only thing missing right now is a bed. I wish I could bring my bed to the office. You know I am in a serious relationship with my bed. You heard it right. We just can't stay away from each other 😉
Office can be monotonous and while I write this, I just checked my office mail and it seems I am up for a debate tomorrow on “Today’s woman is not bounded by the Society but by herself”. I am like WHATTTTT!!! WHEN and HOW did that happen??? Wait now I remember, tomorrow is Women's Day and we did get a mail with different Polls and sleepy as much as I was, I ticked on the Debate button. Gosh, the way tables turn. The valuable lesson learnt : DO NOT SLEEP READ YOUR OFFICE MAILS 😛
The other day my sister (who by the way is equally insane) suggested I should start a blog because supposedly I can write well. Now I could do that but the thought of blogging and coming out to the world can be a bit overwhelming. Not that I am shy or anything . I jell along with almost all kinds of people (pretentious , over-friendly, head eater, pain in the ass, bored-to-death people) . In fact now that I think, I might actually belong to one of the above category . I think i just lost the point I was trying to make!!!
